FREE monthly Community Partner training

The City of Madison - Department of Civil Rights is now holding a FREE monthly Community Partner training. The Community Partner training is a FREE informative virtual workshop session designed to educate community members and organizations about the protections offered under the Equal Opportunities Ordinance and to help raise awareness surrounding Civil Rights issues (i.e. discrimination) in the areas of Employment, Housing, and Public Accommodations.

The training was updated to make it more interactive and easier to understand, with a greater focus on teaching community members and organizations how to assist in identifying situations of discrimination. You'll learn how to aid community members you're already supporting, in filing complaints of discrimination with the City of Madison – Department of Civil Rights.

You and/or your organization are invited to sign-up here to attend one of our FREE monthly Community Partner training. Feel free to share this free training with others in your network or with others who may be interested in learning more.

If the standing dates don't work with your schedule, or your organization needs this training in a different language, you are welcomed to place a request for a separate training.
